January 16 – January 20
This week is more disappointing than the Green Bay Packers' wide receivers in yesterday's Divisional Playoff game, and more barren than my partly mechanical heart in the wake of that loss yesterday. I had held out some early hope that Amy, which launches this week on the PSN, might be an interesting spin through the survival horror genre, but early reviews suggest it as incoherent, bumbling and ineffective as the Packers' 3rd down play calling. So, with not much on the weekly frontier, I guess we'll all just have to grab some bench and look on impotently like the Packers will be during this year's Super Bowl.
Ok, that's out of my system.
Another January week means another week of getting back to those games you missed or needed to revisit. I, for one, just fired up Mass Effect 2 to get caught back up in advance of the rapidly approaching Mass Effect 3. I've also really got to actually go play Uncharted 3 more than the few hours I've got in the game so far at some point as well. Soon enough we'll all be absorbed by shiny new games again, and wonder where the time has gone.
Also worth some attention this week, ICO HD and Shadow of the Colossus HD hit PSN. I'm not sure who's left at this point that hasn't played these games, but if it's you, then go fix that!
